It’s time to talk about the reasons for Down syndrome to develop. Every human body should contain 23 chromosomes. These elements are passed equally by the baby’s parents. However, babies with Down syndrome possess chromosome 21. That’s not a regular cell separation. That’s how additional genetic material appears.

Finally, let’s consider the threats. Those parents who experience certain factors and obstacles are more likely to give birth to a baby with Down syndrome. It is important to take into account the maternal age (older eggs are under the threat of improper cell division) as well as the genetic translocation (whether one of the parents has the same syndrome).
